Convergence Architecture is dedicated to the principle that design is a collaborative effort in which the client and the architect work together to create a successful project. Our goal is to find a solution where all the relevant factors influencing the design – budget, program, aesthetic goal – are taken into account to converge into a functional and inspiring design.
Convergence Architecture specializes in planning, architecture, and interior design services for commercial, residential, healthcare, and public clients. The firm's portfolio of work is diverse in scope and building type, but our design approach is always the same: strong team communication between architect, client, and consultants to converge on a design that integrates budget, program, and aesthetic goals.Convergence Architecture contributes to your projects with:
- Innovative thinking
- Opportunity-based solutions

The current project scope
includes existing conditions documentation, visioning, and
pre-engineering phases. The project
endeavors to revitalize the facility and provide services to the
developing neighborhood surrounding it. The team is currently
embarking on the pre-engineering phase, which will provide a
schematic level of design to be used for cost estimating purposes.
The design team is utilizing Revit to model the existing buildings.
Convergence Architecture is currently conducting a feasibility study of the pool shell and mechanical equipment, in collaboration with the aquatic consultant and electrical and structural engineers. The team documented existing conditions and provided alternates based on input gathered from Portland Parks and Recreation. The alternates will be evaluated and cost estimates prepared to assist the City in determining the scope and direction they wish to proceed.
